about 2700 pounds per cubic yard

(43,560) x (depth of the topsoil in feet) cubic feet

The weight of a yard (a cubic yard, more accurately) of topsoil varies greatly depending upon its moisture content and how well packed it is. But figure 2000 to 2400 pounds.

volume = 23 x 34 x 1/12 = 65.17 cubic feet which is 65.17/27 = 2.41 yards or 6516 pounds at 100 pounds per cubic foot

1 cubic yard is 27 cubic feet, so 3 cubic yards is 81 cubic feet. At 125 lb per cubic foot, that much topsoil would weigh 10,125 lb. At 2000 lb per ton, that converts to 5.0625 tons (if we assume complete precision of all the numbers - if not, then we would be limited to 1 digit of precision because the 3 in 3 cubic yards is only precise to 1 digit. In that case we would have to round the answer off to be 5 tons)

Topsoil is NEVER sold by the "truck-load". Usually in yards or tons, as there are several differant sizes of trucks... A "yard" of dry topsoil should weigh a little less than 1 ton.

That depends on the depth of the topsoil you will put down. Multiply the number of square feet by the depth of topsoil--that will give you the number of cubic feet. To convert to cubic yards, divide the number by 27. So, for example, if you are using 3" of topsoil over 880 square feet then your calculation would be: 880 times .25 (3" = .25 feet) = 220 cubic feet (divided by 27--there are 27 cubic feet in a yard) equals 8.15 cubic yards.

On one site I found the weight of one cubic yard of topsoil listed as 1,35 US tons

This question has no real answer as it depends where you stay and the availability of top soil. How much is a cubic yard of topsoil in Iceland? How much is a cubic yard of topsoil in the Sahara Desert? How much is a cubic yard of topsoil in Washington DC? etc. etc. Check a local newspaper or nursery/ garden centre

One cu.yd. of soil weighs approximately a ton. so you 75 will be close to 75 tons. I've had it delivered sometimes and a tandem axle dump truck usually brough 15 yards max.

(43,560) x (depth of the topsoil in feet) cubic feet

In the US, dirt is measured in cubic yards. The average full sized pick up truck can usually hold about 2 to 3 cubic yards of dirt or topsoil. It varies a bit depending on the size of the pick-up and how strong its springs are. If you are having it filled for the first time, take it slow and watch how much the truck drops as it is being loaded.

To figure out consider this: a dumpster that can enclose 30 cubic yards would have the dimensions approximately of :6feet tall, 22 feet by length and 8 feet wide
